The useful life of a website

Its creators add media for new navigation features, adjust their appearance to suit new trends and, most importantly, continuously incorporate new content.

When a website stops changing, it is in renovate

Many super websites have collapsed due to negligence. Think about your favorite pages, most likely to change daily.

A good website is not one you consult once and then forget, it is one that you can add to your bookmarks and to which you want to return periodically.In a sense they are like a television channel: if no new information is added, it is issuing replenishments. This is a major challenge. Creating a website is hard enough and keeping it up is even more so. Here are a few tips:

THINK BY STAGES

When you show your website online for the first time, it will not be complete. Instead, think of it as version 1 and start planning certain changes for the next version. Little by little, stage by stage, you can add everything you want to have.

SELECT THE PARTS THAT YOU CAN EDIT REGULARLY AND LEAVE THE REST

There is no way to review an entire website every week. So the best strategy is to identify the sections you want to change on a regular basis. In a personal one, for example, you can put the news on a separate page and update only that part.

In one of a small business, you should focus on the home page to be able to announce new products and news.

DESIGN A WEBSITE THAT IS EASY TO CHANGE

It is the most difficult principle to follow because it not only requires planning, but also accumulated experience. As you acquire it, you will learn to simplify your life by creating pages that are easier to update.

One method to follow is to start separating the information on different pages in order to be able to add new content without reorganizing everything. Another technique is to use style sheets to separate the formatting of the page from the content.In this way, you can easily insert new material without having to format the content.

A GOOD WEBSITE:
  • Displays content efficiently
  • It is easy to use and maintain
  • It has a robust architecture
  • Use technology appropriately
  • Accessibility to the content of the site through different technologies
  • Homogeneous and coherent within the concepts of graphic design
